Molten Salted Caramel and Chocolate Puddings with Smoked Salt

If you are going to do puddings you might as well go all out and do it properly. And these Molten Salted Caramel and Chocolate Puddings with Smoked Salt is my valiant attempt at doing it properly. I certainly think I have succeeded. I can’t take any of the credit though. I was wide awake one morning and I while scrolling through Instagram at 4am, an image of Gizzy Irskine’s Molten Caramel and Chocolate Puddings appeared on Matt Inwood’s feed. I…

Churros

As I perused the menu at Benguela Brasserie and Restaurant and saw that each dessert was served with a different ice cream, I knew I was going to get on just fine with the chef, Kelly-Anne Pietersen. I was there to photograph her food and you are aware that you are stepping into someone’s domain. What I was not prepared for was her incredible eye for colour and how she combines it with such beauty and ease on each plate…

Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt

I can’t think of a better New Year’s Eve snack than this Caramel Popcorn with Coffee Salt. The rich golden colour adds that celebratory feel and the taste is just phenomenal. I adapted the recipe from the Spicy Salted Caramel Popcorn recipe I posted earlier this year from Sam Linsell’s book called Sweet. Even though I am not the biggest fan of the salted caramel craze (I find most combinations overdone with saltiness, thereby spoiling the caramel flavour), salt always…

Peppermint Ice Cream Cake

Summer time is ice cream cake time, Peppermint Crisp Ice Cream Cake time to be precise. Layers of smashed cookies, a layer of vanilla ice cream flavoured with peppermint extract, another layer of vanilla ice cream mixed with rich caramel, topped with a few crushed slabs peppermint crisp chocolate makes for a sublime summer time treat. Peppermint Crisp Tart is one of those iconic South African desserts and this parfait version I did last year remains a popular recipe on…

Caramel Poached Clementines

These Caramel Poached Clementines has to be my favourite dessert of the moment. So much so that if we had citrus fruit during Xmas this would be my number one Xmas dessert. And as you can see I am so happy with the photos so the post is jam packed with them. The addition of the brandy and vanilla adds to the exceptional layers of flavour of the dessert. You have the deep sweetness of the caramel, perfumed with the clementine…

Spiced Dulce de Leche

No matter how convenient convenience might be, few things can beat homemade. This Spiced Dulce de Leche is just one of those little work, high reward homemade dishes. But be warned. It is utterly delicious and addictive. Made from a tin of condensed milk, it is slowly heated and as it cooks it changes flavour and colour. It is very popular in Latin America and the French also have a version, called Confiture de Lait. Here in South Africa we…
